Lunch at Tokyo Noodle Shop

I met up with Charles and our Folk Fest warehouse manager for lunch today at Tokyo Noodle Shop (10736 82 Avenue).
We had been once before and didn't have the best experience as far as food and service goes, but of course, the location is ideal. And I have to say, their windows are ideal for people watching...

Unlike our previous visit, the sashimi ($25.95 for 24 pieces) was great, especially my favourite, the squid. And both the shitake maki ($4 for 6 rolls) and toro sushi ($4.75 for two pieces) were also really good. I liked the bit of green onion on top of the toro - it gave it a nice punch, while still letting the fatty flavour of the tuna through. Charles ordered the same noodle dish as he did during our previous visit - the chicken udon ($9.25); I'm sad to say that he didn't find any improvement.
Service, we all agreed, wasn't the best. Short and to the point... maybe it was because we came in at the end of the lunch rush? Who knows.
